Erection is certainly the most visible
phase to the customer. For this reason, it needs to be professionally
managed, and finish on time. Other items on the partial list include:
Documentation Field operations
need complete documentation. This is typically missing or incomplete
for most producers. Start the job right. Here is a partial
Daily report showing starting and finish time,
pieces set, weather, safety, extra work, delays.
Prompt written notification of all delays
and extra work.
Documentation of all repairs.
Documentation of all damage from other trades.
Keep a log of all field rework by mark number
and cast date for QC analysis.
Up to date safety reporting. Don't let
this get behind.
Prompt submission of written change requests
A pre-erection survey is essential to insure that access is satisfactory
and the site is actually ready. Crane reach and access conditions
should conform to your plan. Those requirements should have ben a
matter of agreement at the kickoff meeting with the customer.
Erection Plan The most important
thing is an every piece erection sequence. This is needed before
the production plan.
Inspections Here are some key
Use a PCI Certified erector if that is possible
You should have an agreement with your customer
for prompt inspection of completed work. This helps in approval of
progress payments and minimizes the punchlist. This progress inspection
should be keyed to partial return of retainage, but that will have to be
negotiated before you sign the contract.
Keep up with welding inspections. This
is both a practical as well as a safety consideration.
Job Storage The need
for surge storage at or near the job needs to be determined and arranged.
Job Safety Most jobs
now require submittal of a safety plan including fall protection.
